The families of four Israeli hostages have urged Rishi Sunak to apply pressure on Qatar to help free their loved ones.

The father of 18-year-old Liri Albag, the older brother of 26-year-old twins Ziv and Gali Berman, and the girlfriend of Eliya Cohen, also 26, pleaded with the prime minister to do everything in his power to secure their release after 108 days in captivity.

During a week-long truce in November, Hamas released dozens of hostages in exchange for Palestinian prisoners held by Israel, in a deal brokered by Qatar, Egypt and the US.

Albag, one of the youngest remaining hostages, appeared in a Hamas propaganda video after she was abducted from an army base on 7 October.
